Abstract

From 1974 to April 1979, 5571 mammographies were made in the Department of Radiology of the University of Ulm. In 319 cases (5,7%) we observed calcifications of the mammarian arteries. The incidence of arterial calcifications in mammography in patients up to 60 yrs of age was higher than coronary calcifications could be diagnosed by chest fluoroscopy or in an autopsy series by other authors. As the small mammarian arteries show an equal histological structure as the coronary arteries, they must show the same type of calcification. Therefore we consider that calcifications of the mammarian arteries could be a sign of general atherosclerosis.
